Final update - Wrestling with Twitter cont'd
Maybe they read me here I don't know, but when I returned, on top of all the follows I'd made, they'd restored the rest of them, and when I went back
into my unfollow spy and got rid of all superfluous unfollow backs (those I followed but who didn't follow back) and then returned to Twitter, lo &
behold wasn't the final count, get this - 1776! LOL Crazy!
But here's the interesting part in all this.
Before, that number would fluctuate as other Trump MAGA supporters were locked out or returned via Google authentication or after some brief
suspension, so it required continual adjustment.
What someone at Twitter didn't like was that number of those I follow, and this time I didn't even do it on purpose it just worked out that way.
Needless to say that there seemed to be some sort of power struggle going on regarding the censoring of my account, and the twitter twit was caught
not once, not twice, but three times, and each time the result went in my favor.
Lastly, the count isn't fluxuating any more, at least it hasn't for quite some time, so it serves as a type of barometer as to their continued effort
to try to tip the scales in the debate that's going on in the public square of twitter.
What's also funny is I report everything bad that I see no matter who posts it and 3 times I've been thanked for my contribution to the conversation
and health of the community, so they also have that on my record.
They appear to have also lifted a hash tag ban on me that was limiting my reach.
I wrestled with Twitter and made it through the gauntlet while silently driving home a point according to their own behavior, and now, there it sits
once again - 1776 followed. A good number I think. Question is, will it fluxuate without my doing ie: via continued Twitter censorship directed at
conservatives? Time will tell.
Although these details may seem insignificant, I don't think they are.
